After the Qingming Festival, the coolness of morning and night gradually fades. It's the high time to find a restaurant to treat yourself with delicacies and a walk after a meal, and the Lotus Restaurant in Xiushui Square by Qiandao Lake is just the right place to do so.
The Lotus丨Only for You
The Lotus is located at the west end of Xiushui Square. The antique and simple interior decoration is mixed with modern style of reinforced concrete, which not only endows the restaurant with a strong sense of history, but also makes it exquisite and beautiful. Outside, a tall red lantern and firewood stack, together with a retro architectural style, make people feel as if they have passed through time into an ancient inn.
The Lotus丨Sense of Intimacy
The appearance and decoration of the restaurant give people a sense of intimacy. Red bricks, tiles, lanterns, pots, all of which are very much like the scene of childhood in the countryside.
The Lotus restaurant combines delicacies sourced from the lake and mountains around the lake together, and serves guests with delicious dishes cooked in the most authentic way.
The Lotus丨"Good-looking" Dishes
The Lotus is a restaurant that can make food tasted as if cooked by mom and make dishes as appreciable as works of art.
Fu Lin Ben Ji (Local Chicken 福临本鸡)
The whole tender local chicken, golden in color under the chef's cooking, is poised on a plate for diners to taste. The good smell of the braised, crispy local chicken sends a ripple of pleasure through your whole body.
Fang Jian Tofu (Folk Tofu 坊间豆腐)
The well-boiled tofu is white and very tender, as fragile as jade. Carefully picking up a piece, dipping it in the Lotus special sauce, putting it into your mouth and letting the pleasant bean flavor pass through your body ... the whole process is more than just pleasant. Tofu is rich in protein, and not only contains eight kinds of amino acids necessary for the human body, but also has a proportion that is very close to human needs, with high nutritional value.
Yao's Private Eggplant (姚氏私房茄子)
As for eggplant, all restaurants have one or two dishes to offer. But the Yao's Private Eggplant of the Lotus restaurant will no doubt impress you the most. The braised long eggplants with minced meat, pepper and secret sauce are very tasty.
